There’s nothing worse than losing out on the job you really want because of any of the following points. They are all dreadful.
Don't be late! Employers are not interested in excuses, however true it might be.
Never cancel an interview unless you really have to. Too much rain or problems on the tube are not valid excuses.
Don't wear an outfit you would wear to go clubbing! It may be when you feel you look at your best but a smart and professional outfit will go down much better with an interviewer.
Too much make up and over powering perfume or aftershave are a definite no no.
Don't have a drink or a smoke to give you confidence for the interview. They'll know!
Don't give a limp handshake! Achh
Don't be over familiar with the interviewer. You may have similar interests but unless the interviewer brings this up remember you are there to show your skills and experience for the role and not to build a lasting friendship and don't flirt.
Don't talk over the interviewer. The perfect answer may pop into your head whilst they are talking but keep it there until they have finished. And keep listening.
Never giggle and never cry during an interview. And don't ramble.
Never badmouth anyone or anywhere you’ve ever worked -
Don't use slang or any xxxxxxx swear words
